. secretary clinton has indicated that she is going to implement all of them. what i -- my message to the state department has been very simple. and that is we're going to solve this. we're not going to be defensive about it. we're no pretend that this was not a problem. this was a huge problem and we're going to implement every single recommendation that's been put forward. some individuals have been held accountable inside of the state department and what i've said is that we are going to fix this to make sure this does not happen again because these are folks that i send into the field. we understand that there are dangers involved. but when you read the report and it confirms what we had already seen based on some of our internal reviews, there was just some sloppiness, not intentional, in terms of how we secure embassies in areas where you essentially don't have governments that have a lot of capacity to protect those embassies. so we're doing a thorough review. not only will we implement the recommendations that were made, but we'll try to do more than that. with respect to w

, is that inheritable by somebody else, by a classic politician? can hillary clinton still get those voters? will people think that she is outside politics, outside of washington the way that people think of barack obama, which is a wholly new thing. that is sui generis. >> i don't see it like that especially because the man himself is an island unto himself in washington, d.c. >> yes. >> he is not a democratic party boss like tip o'neill. he's not even really connected with the chicago political machine. >> and curiously, people like that. >> he is his own man. that's a great thing unless you are the democrats that want this to be passed along four years from now. >> but is there, in your view, a philosophical way of being that is inheritable, to use rick's word? is this pragmatic problem-solving approach that clinton began and obama has clearly taken through this four years, five years so far, is the next republican victor going to have to be someone who is less ideological than, say, 30 years ago? >> well, i take exception with the suggestion that barack obama has been pragmatic. he passed a lot of t

enacted under president clinton. now we all voted, at least all the democrats here, that were here then voted for the clinton tax bill in 1993. we heard all kinds of talk from the other side of the aisle how this is going to be disastrous, it was going to kill the economy. it was just going to be awful. and not one republican supported it. but we passed it. president clinton signed it into law, and guess what happened? the economy took off. unemployment came down. the economy started going. and we were paying down the deficit. we had three straight years or four of surpluses. c.b.o. said if we continued on that way, we would pay off the national debt by 2010. well, then george bush came into office, they looked at all the surpluses out there and said guess what? we've got to take some of that and give it back in tax cuts, and that's what they did. now that's what's ending tonight. that's what ends tonight, are those bush tax cuts. so we go back to the tax system that we had under bill clinton. i ask, what's so bad about that? it worked pretty darned well. the economy was going well

,000 for individuals. $450,000 for families from tax increase amounts go to clinton era rates, top rate there, 39.6%. permanently patches all the tern any of minimum tax to assure unless of americans avoid paying amt. estate tax goes to 40%. all amounts exempt up to $5 million. one year extension of unemployment benefits. delay in the ski questionster, that is what they're talking about now. where do you get the other spending cuts to replace the automatic spending cuts of $94 billion next year? there is something to increase spending part of this as well. this is something congress usually does every year. this is the doc fix, to insure medicare doctors don't get a massive cut. this is part the framework. this costs money. republicans and conservatives say we need to get spending under control here, perhaps letting sequester hit automatic cuts would be good at least they get their spending cuts. one item not in here very good for chances of passage in the house, debt ceiling is not incree. republicans say they can use that to extract more spending cuts as the new congress takes over later this w
ran on anti-american level. arguing against the united states. speaking of clinton as hillary clinton, secretary of state organizing the demonstrations against him. then in the policy world. supporting iran against us, on the nuclear issue. supporting assad in genocide war against his people. last week he supplied diesel to the tanks and the forces which were requiring it. this is a guy, our policy is complete failure in respect russia. >> doug: a minute left. brief comment on the death of four-star general normon schwarzkopf. >> a great soldier. we treb left hook in 1991 in the 100-hours war that got iraqis out of kuwait. >> hail mary pass. >> didn't do as well in cease-fire negotiations which allowed them to keep the helicopters, which used to kill shiites. >> charles? >> he did, i mean he was a war hero in vietnam days. tremendously successful leading desert storm. but in addition, i think it was a seminole event in our history that it restored the prestige, and the affection that americans have of the american military. which suffered horribly in the vietnam days and '70s. even in
will jump from 10% back to the clinton-era rate of 15%. that's a pretty big financial bite for people in west virginia and i know in ohio, too, sir. these are people that are struggling right now. instead of an overnight tax hike of 5%, the calm act smooths the transition by phasing in increases over three years. so instead of a 5% increase, the 10% bracket would only go to 1 1.6% the first year. the calm act does the same with the other tax rate tax rates phm in over three years. but the calm act also puts the senate on record in support of comprehensive overhaul of our tax system. we can still work towards a big fix like the simpson-bowles framework and if we can do that next year, we could stop the full increase from ever occurring. another important feature of the calm act is the way it treats sequestration. again, if we go over the cliff and do nothing, nearly every government program will be hit with the same percentage cut, and that includes social services, education, research and infrastructure, all of the things that we need to grow our fragile economy. the calm act gives th
campaigned on it, $250,000 threshold for family income for the return to the clinton jer gentleman tafrm rates of 39.6. republicans didn't want tax increases on anybody. democrats wanted more on estate tax. they are getting it. not as much as the president proposed in his budget. so the magic of these deals is that everybody can describe something as victory. and if we get it, if democrats ultimately can come to an accord with republicans on the length of the deferral of the automatic across the board cuts, that's the final key. and somebody's going to have to give on that. democrats are holding firm because they think they've given more. >> john, can you reiterate for us, please, the details of the deal as your reporting has indicated. >> on the biggest piece, the middle class tax cuts, there is a tentative agreement to raise the top rate on taxes to 39.6, clinton era rates for individuals who make over $400,000 and couples who make over $450,000. that's the threshold. also above the threshold, cap gains and dividends from 20% to 15. those are the basics on middle class taxes. on estate
with these negotiations. here are some of the things that are on it. taxes would rise to return to the clinton error rates for families making over 450,000 year to may individuals making more than 400 to a back to the top rate of 36%. there would be a permanent fix to the alternative minimum tax, which is something that congress patches every year. it affects about 30 million people and is worth about 90 billion per year. that would get fixed permanently according to the sources. the estate tax would go from 35% to 40% on the more than 5 million. those under 5 million would not get taxed at all. the deal also throws in extended jobless benefits for another year. again, they're trying to work on figuring out how to mitigate or delay these sequestration spending cuts. there is some talk about putting them off for a couple of months to give congress some time to really look into it in a more deliberative way and find some spending cuts elsewhere. gerri: so, where is the fiscal austerity? where is then no spending? is seems to me like it's all about raising taxes. it's all about spending more money. there is
. awful people in the clinton administration. that is true. agreed. greed is good. hollywood movies are about greed. oliver stone tried to warn against it. instead, wall street bankers were imitating gecko, like war movies that create warmongers. at the same time, you had another explanation which had to do with the way in which the finance tapped into a competing power. -- into computing power to create complex derivatives. all that is true. but what is underlying this and the crisis and the reason why the world economy fails to recover is that this surplus recycling mechanism -- this weird, wonderful, audacious surplus recycling mechanism from 1971 which poker helped put together as the chairman of the fed -- which paul volcker helped put together is the chairman of the fed in the late 1970 fell and 1980's, it broke down. in 2008, when lehman brothers broke down, and the others followed and had to be bailed out by you, what happened was the united states of america lost its capacity to utilize its trade deficit in order to recycle other people's problems. -- profits. if you look a
